The 55th annual Black Hills Stock Show and Rodeo was held January 25-February 3, 2013. It is the first of the year must-go-to event. At the show and rodeo, the activities hold something for everyone- seeing all the different breeds of cattle, the latest gadgets for the rancher and the ranch wife, attending the sheep dog trial, ranch rodeo and professional rodeos. What can beat a day on the town with your man and a tasty dinner at a fancy restaurant in the evening? If any of our readers have never been to the Black Hills Stock Show and Rodeo, it is the place to be in western South Dakota at the end of January to early February!
